London (ANI): Avatar director James Cameron feels he might not be able to win the Oscars. The helmer insisted that his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow"s film 'The Hurt Locker", which is also in the running, has strong chances of triumphing. "I always believe it's very unlikely that lightning will strike twice," the Mirror quoted him as telling Empire magazine, in an interview before the Oscar nominations were announced.
He added: "Hurt Locker is a very, very strong picture. Of the contenders that are being bandied about it, it's definitely the strongest. "Certainly it's Kathryn's moment. I'm certain she'll get nominated and I would happily lose to her. "I've already got one of those damn statues. I'd be p***ed off if somebody else won, but I wouldn't mind if she won."
Referring to the moment he exclaimed "I''''m king of the world" when he landed the best director gong for Titanic in 1998, Cameron said: "If we get nominated, I believe it's very unlikely that we will win because I made such a jackass of myself last time. “Although there might be some curiosity about what I might do." Avatar has been nominated in nine categories at the Oscars.
